Playtime Enrichment with Manhattan Toy’s Fall 2016 Collection {Giveaway}

Since our sweet 4-month-old boy is our last baby, we’re trying to soak in and savor every new milestone, skill, and smile he throws our way.  I think I could never tire of watching him learn his current skill of grabbing items of interest and inspecting them.  I love seeing his chubby little fingers grasping new objects and turning them over and around, with smiles and looks of awe.  Throughout this stage of discovery, toys that pique his interest and encourage exploration are important to keep around.  The Manhattan Toy Company is one company that I know I can rely … …..

VTech Toys for Every Stage of Learning

Every once in a while I get a nostalgic feeling and take some time to go back over all of our pictures of the boys from the time they were newborns.  The long nights seem to stretch on forever, but looking back, they grew so fast.
